KULTURPROJECT PEANUT

From 670 linear meters of three identical lines, the project began as an international and proactive trajectory for the housed contents, treating the space as a closed artistic experience and setting it with a curator quality.

This process materialized through the use of stackable building elements generating, besides the very spaces, an optical effect texture. A piece that went beyond civil construction and able to constitute an object of art, both individually and within the group, was sought, transforming the pavillion in a plastic space and enriching it with movement, light and emotion.

The ceramic blocks work similar to a standard concrete masonry unit wall. Instead of an extruded rectangle in shape, a family of mathematically derived curves generated rounded, vessel – like units that are self-stacking, and that use their inherent geometry to lock each unit to its neighbor.

The wall it produces, while almost completely opaque, has subtle gaps between the stacks that reveal themselves in light as one moves past.
